Villanova University – Adjunct Faculty Management

In May 2012, the  Delphi Project on the USC campus in partnership with the Association of American Colleges & Universities began researching and discovered that the American professoriate is becoming a mostly contingent workforce. This raises important questions about working conditions and the connection between these conditions and student learning outcomes.
How did Villanova come together to ensure that their adjunct, NTTFs, and C&T faculty succeeded?

Join us to hear how Villanova’s Human Resources & Academic Affairs departments teamed-up to create a unique candidate experience for contingent faculty and how they created efficient processes for searching, hiring, and onboarding the best talent, and how they continue to develop and retain that talent through performance evaluations.

In this HRCI Pre-Approved Webcast, you will hear about:

  • The Challenges They Faced and How They Addressed Them through Automation
  • The Current Process for How They Successfully Handle the Talent Management of Their Contingent Faculty
  • The Successful Outcome Based on Performance Evaluations from both the Respective Departments and from the Students
